Daily Life of an Active Soccer Franchisee
Most day’s during term time our franchisees are out delivering coaching sessions. Sessions can last from one-five hours.
Additional income for the business can be generated through the successful delivery of active soccer holiday schemes, birthday parties and use of the active soccer branded inflatables for special events.
Once sessions are complete, franchisees carry out local marketing and capitalise on the prominence of their Active Soccer van.
General marketing combines online activity (website and social media) and traditional flyers, poster and banners being distributed.
